and eventually i ran for school board and i have been on the school board for 8 years and currently i'm the president. during the eight years i've been able to provide leadership, build consensus and make tough decisions. and because of that now we have the best urban school district in california. our test scores have gone up every single year since i've been on the school board. and, in fact, last year was the first time we started closing the achievement gap, which is not the easiest thing to do for any school district. i can't tell you this right now because it's in bargain, but we know our test scores as a district and we're going to be showing when it comes out in a week or so that it's going to blow everybody's socks off in terms of where we have landed. and a lot of this is through the work of staff and the superintendent and for us to be focused on what we're doing we

need to improve student achievement. now, why am i talking about education that much? mainly because i have a public record of eight years, a proven track record where i've worked with people and gotten results. so, this is the type of independent voice that i'm going to bring into district 7 as a supervisor. i will bring not only my leadership, my ability to build bristol-myers squibbvxes and build consensus, but i'm going to find -- you're going to find that i'm very solution oriented. and that i'm not wedded to any particular ideology about where the solutions come from. whether solutions come from the right or the left or the middle, it doesn't matter to me. solutions we find is solution. so, here i am. why am i running for leadership? i want to focus on our economy. i want to grow job opportunities for the students
12:32pm
that are graduating our high schools. they are now graduating, beginning to graduate with requirements. they are totally prepared to take on this high wages, high-paying jobs such as biotech and the tech companies. so, now that they're ready, we have to have the jobs ready for them. and i'm more than willing to work with our business partners to create new jobs. the other thing i i'm going to be focusing on will be that i want to make sure our streets and our homes are safe. i in particular want to spend much of my time making sure that our pedestrians, in particular seniors and little children, are safe when they cross the street. this is very personal to me, very, very personal. six years ago i was hit by a car and almost died and now whenever somebody talks about pedestrian safety, my ears perk up.
12:33pm
